Bound And Gagged Body Found Under Coney Island Boardwalk

A bound and gagged, decomposed body was found under the boardwalk at Brooklyn's Coney Island beach, police said Tuesday.

Officers responding to a 911 call found the body under the boardwalk at Surf Avenue and West 5th Street just before 11:30 p.m. Monday, police said.

The mouth was duct-taped and the hands were tied with rope, police said.

The body was too decomposed to immediately determine the person's sex or approximate age, a police spokesperson said.

The city medical examiner's office will determine the cause of death.
